Low budget doesn’t mean low effort
“It’s ok. We’re cutting your arm off”
This freshman feature by Toby Wilkins may not be the most original or even well made horror film, but with it’s interesting premise and plenty of practical effects and gore it is a fun little diamond in the rough.
This may be stretching the “one location” criteria for this Hooptober, but the vast majority does take place at a small gas station so it works…
Binged this series in record time for something so large (195 episodes!) Definitely a landmark series that inspired countless series and genres. From Tenchi Muyo to Darling in the Franxx, Urusei Yatsura has left its mark on anime.

“Bad luck isn't brought by broken mirrors, but by broken minds.”
Dario Argento’s fever dream.
A fantastical acid trip into a world of endless hallways, colors bleeding through the scenery, mysterious sounds echoing just on the other side of a door, a soundtrack of creepy ~ la la las~, and style, style, style.
It might be too soon to say this, but this is Peak Argento.
The atmosphere is so incredibly overbearing, you’re never in a state of relaxation. You…
